Your wine-soaked summer reading list.



The Juice: Vinous Veritas

By Jay McInerney (Vintage Books, $16)

In no way a technical look at wine, this collection of essays from the famed Wall Street Journal scribe captures his exuberant love affair with the vine. The Juice is an entertaining break from the often too-precious world of wine writing.

 


Sherry, Manzanilla & Montilla: A Guide to the Traditional Wines of Andalucía

By Peter Liem, Jesús Barquín (Manutius, $30)

With Sherry having a major moment right now, this authoritative guide couldn’t come at a better time. A proverbial bible on the classic Spanish wine, the book will satisfy oenophiles and novices alike.

 


Divine Vintage: Following the Wine Trail from Genesis to the Modern Age

By Randall Heskett, Joel Butler (Palgrave Macmillan, $27)

Traveling back to the Beginning (as in, “The”), the authors explore wine’s connection to the spiritual. Walking the vineyards of the Old and New Testaments, you’ll discover ancient varieties and learn about the modern revival of ancient techniques.   

 


Celebrity Vineyards: From Napa to Tuscany in Search of Great Wine

By Nick Wise (Welcome Books, $35)

Focusing on stars who not only bill themselves as winemakers but have the cred to back it up, Wise successfully makes a case for dialing back our often knee-jerk skepticism of celeb wines.
